Very nice carving :handgestures-thumbup: What type of wood did you use and what are the sizes for the figures?

Thanks Joe
I am using European Boxwood. The size of these figures is about 5-8 cms - refer to the ruler in the first picture.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Since I joined the hobby, have to say Janos's work ranks at the very top for inspiration and just plain 'wow' factor. I love it and want to see more and more of your work Janos. Thank goodness you are here on SOS. :handgestures-thumbup:

Thanks, Guys!
I've got two hobbies now- ship model building and carving. The latter is a hobby in a hobby!
Sovereign of the Seas will combine both. At the moment I am building the hull and as soon as I can start carving (after planking) I've got, again, a double hobby going. The carving serves me well also as I am volunteering in the Australian Maritime Museum once-twice a month, as those small pieces are easy to carry and to work on while on duty.
